Kompany has been sidelined by a calf injury that was expected to keep him out until after next week's FA Cup fifth-round tie with Leeds. However, the Blues skipper returned to training on Wednesday and could be available at St Mary's.

"We are optimistic," said manager Roberto Mancini. "He trained yesterday, and two days ago. After today we will decide."
